  PSG slips to 3rd after losing to Monaco; Lille stays top PARIS — Days after routing Barcelona in the Champions League, Paris Saint-Germain lost 2-0 at home to Monaco to fall back down to earth and into third place in the French league. Fourth-place Monaco was hardly troubled on Sunday as it won for the ninth time in the last 10 games to move just two points behind defending champion PSG, which now trails Lyon by one point and league leader Lille by four. There are 12 games left. Monaco did the “double” on PSG following its 3-2 league win at home in late November.

Stade Rennais will not be late. According to the information of our colleagues from the newspaper L'Équipe , Bruno Genesio was chosen to succeed Julien Stéphan on the bench of the 9th in Ligue 1. Stéphan (40 years old), tired and "at the end of the race" according to a close friend of the Breton club, handed in his resignation to its leaders on Monday . Different names then circulated to take over, including Bruno Genesio, Jocelyn Gourvennec or Lucien Favre. It is the former coach of Lyon (2015-2019), who therefore seems to be the lucky one, two months after having put an end to his experience at Beijing Guoan, in China.

After the new defeat of Rennes against Nice this Friday , Julien Stéphan did not hide his annoyance about the refereeing observed at the time of a fault by Jean-Clair Todibo on Jérémy Doku. “The big turning point in the match is just before half-time.

The team evokes "details" to be settled between Rennes and Genesio (54 years old) before formalization. At the end of January, the ex-midfielder said he was "ready to train a French club other than Olympique Lyonnais" on the channels of the Téléfoot channel. "I need a new challenge, sporting but also human. I attach a lot of importance to the human being, insisted Genesio. A month ago, Montpellier was thinking of him to take over from Michel Der Zakarian, at the end of his contract at the MHSC. It was more in line with Genesio's wish not to land at a club during the season. But the Rennes opportunity seems to have convinced him. He will meet there in particular Florian Maurice, sports director in Brittany and responsible for the recruitment unit of OL between 2014 and 2020. Irony of fate: Lyon receives Rennes this Wednesday (7pm) as part of the 28th day of Ligue 1, for what could be Genesio's first game at the helm of Stade Rennais.
